Review – A Dream of Harmony

I just finished reading  “A Dream of Harmony” by Debby Lee. This is  a delightful short story of 33 pages, a sweet, inspirational romance with characters that are are lovingly drawn.

It tells the tale of Sharon, a half-Indian, half Caucasian girl, who is searching for a sister who was plucked from the family by child services some ten years earlier. As the story opens, Dr. Martin Luther King is assassinated. Sharon’s reaction to the news reverberates throughout this poignant story, as she reacts to the racial tensions of the times and the fears of never seeing her sister again. Sharon is aided by her childhood friend, Robert, who also disappeared from her life during childhood. Deeply attracted to his kind and handsome man, tension builds as the wrestles with fears commitment and the challenges of youth during the American 1960s.

Debby Lee gets the details right. This gentle story is lovingly drawn, beautifully written and so tender that, at times, it brought tears to my eyes.

    I just had an authors panel with Debby Lee yesterday at my college. She’s an absolutely amazing woman who is doing such great things with her writing! I’m so glad to have met her and look forward to mentoring through her! I couldn’t agree more with you about this story. She really does paint a beautiful picture with her words.

      She is, indeed a lovely person. I met her through Olympia’s chapter of Romance Writers of America, nearly two years ago. It’s refreshing to know a lady who stands for her principles and helps her characters do the same.Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting!
